Infirmary Hosts Blood Drive on September 21 to Support Hurricane Affected Areas

Together we can make a difference beyond our own community by helping those affected by hurricanes in the last month. That’s why we are hosting a blood drive with the Arkansas Blood Institute on September 21 from 10am – 4pm at the Infirmary! So far, they’ve sent more than 700 units to areas affected by the hurricanes. Anyone over the age of 16, can give blood.

 Donors will receive a free, Arkansas Razorbacks t-shirt and meal voucher.

One blood donation can save as many as three lives, and takes only about an hour.

Arkansas Blood Institute, a non-profit blood center, serves over 30 hospitals and medical facilities in the state, including the CHI St. Vincent Health System and every major hospital in Central Arkansas, as well as in Fort Smith, Conway, Hot Springs and Pine Bluff.

Appointments are not required but can be made by visiting or calling (877) 340-8777.
